Yes I know, it’s 95 degrees outside, but it’s that time again, time to restock the firewood. The Nations weather patterns have been strange, to say the least! So today, I had a ½ cord of firewood delivered and stacked which normally gets me to mid-December before I need to re-order to finish off the winter which is until early March. March 15th is normally my last frost.
With the weird weather everyone one is having in the north makes me suspect the winter here in Northeast Florida will show some light snow at least once this winter (it’s been about 30 years since the last snow). We like a fire going in the fireplace, it’s a very peaceful time, but it also helps keep the electric bill under control, because we are all-electric and the heat-pump works hard and long during December.
Is it a real cost savings to burn wood for a little heat? No, what you see is $204.00 worth of delivered and stacked firewood (a 4 x 8-foot face cord). December I will have to order another load to finish the cold season.
